Number 7 Arts

Such a light filled, airy space in downtown Brevard, NC! I am quite honored to become a new member of this cooperative gallery. The displays are not jammed together, everyone's work is highlighted in vignettes. This gallery glows with the talent from its members. A must see location!

Artist Statement: The felled wood I work with was alive at one time and may have been destined for the fireplace but through my imagination and hands I work to bring life back into it.
